Robey plans to take in Cats vs. Cards

Sam Robey, a 6-4, 253-pound offensive lineman/defensive end from Louisville's Trinity H.S., made an unofficial visit to Louisville this past Thursday night to see the Cardinals take on Middle Tennessee State.

"I just went out and watched the game after football practice," Robey told "I didn't really get to talk to anybody, because I got there about 15 minutes before the game started."

Like most people, Robey was surprised how close the game was before UofL pulled away for the win. "It was a lot of closer (than I thought it would be)," he said. "It's fun watching a lot of scoring but dang, that's a lot of offense."

In just a few days, the No. 8 player in the state of Kentucky will head to Lexington to check out two of his top schools square off in the 2007 Governor's Cup. There is a likely chance Robey will get to see a large number of points scored again this Saturday night.

"I'll be down there. It should be a really good game," he said.

Robey, who said he has been to the last three or four UK-UofL matchups, said the winner of the game won't necessarily take the lead in his recruitment. "I want to see how they play. Both teams should be pretty excited," he said. "But I don't think (who wins) is as much a deciding factor as it is to other people. I'm just going out to watch them play. It's always a fun game. I think it will be an awesome offensive game. It should be fun to watch."

It appear's Robey's decision will come down to the Cats and the Cards, and don't expect him to tip his hand as to where he's leaning Saturday night. "I'll be wearing my Trinity stuff," he said with a laugh.

When could a decision come? "I really don't know," he answered. "I'm kind of going back and forth between it all. I'm trying to focus more on my season right now."

Trinity's season continues with a tough test this coming Friday, when they face one of the top teams in the country in Cincinnati St. Xavier. The Shamrocks are looking forward to the challenge of stopping fellow Louisville prospect Darius Ashley, who missed time recently with a leg injury.

"I'm excited about it. The whole team is," he commented. "It's kind of fun. We're not really used to be underdogs that much. That makes it more exciting to go up there and play them. I'm hoping he (Ashley) is back. I'd really like to go up against him."

Previously listed as a tight end, Robey said he has been playing defensive end and left tackle for Trinity so far this season.
